Headers and Body Formatting

Overview

After you’ve figured out what authentication method to use, you can send your first correctly formatted call to our system.

Header Formatting

Header formatting varies greatly depending on the programming language used for the integration. The best place to seek help with header formatting is in the documentation for your chosen language. We can provide an example CURL commands to integrators who have started development.

Body Formatting

Our API accepts either JSON or XML formatted requests. We expect all integrations to follow the standard for each of these formats. We can give some guidance on how to change a particular call,but you should consult the documentation on each standard while learning how to send calls to our API. More details are given on this page: JSON and XML Encoding Details

Extensible Markup Language (XML)

Generally the W3C standard is a good resource to reference when learning XML. It is available here: W3C XML Documentation

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)

JSON documentation and functionality are part of many high level languages. The JSON standard itself is defined here: JSON Documentation
